Repair Speaker Connection to Logic Board
I truly hope someone can help. I've carefully made it through the replacement of my internal HD per iFixit instructions. However, at step 25 (removing speaker connection) the connector on the logic board separated. Is there any way to repair this connection without taking this to an expensive repair shop?
Thank you!! / Curtis
If there's still a bit of solder on the four small audio solder pads on the logic board yes you can resolder the socket in place using a pencil soldering iron like the Weller WM 120. There are two methods to restore the speakers functionality when the audio socket was pulled from the logic board. If the socket still has the four pins under it then you can resolder them if not then you can solder four wires directly to the pads then solder or connect them to the speakers wires.
